Walmart, the nation’s and world’s largest retailer is always looking to give the customer extra for their buck, either through low prices, or offers or promotions. Now, Sam’s Club is offering more perks when compared with other warehouse club memberships. The new one is for those who have electric vehicles.
Electric vehicles owners who live close to a Walmart and have a Sam’s Club membership will choose its warehouse over others in the same location due to an additional perk that is not offered by its competitors.
From May 1, onwards, a Sam’s Club member, who also has the warehouse club’s signature Mastercard can get back 5 percent in Sam’s Cash on EV charges. This will apply at EV charging stations in the U.S. that are eligible for this discount.
In March, Sam’s Club combined earlier member rewards program called Sam’s Club Mastercard Cash Back Rewards as well as Plus Cash Rewards into a single, simplified platform. Members can consolidate all their rewards that they earn and spend it through one platform.
In May, Sam’s Club Mastercard cardholders will get an extra 5 percent on electric vehicle charges making it a total of 10 percent back in Sam’s cash for May, in this special promotion for electric vehicle charging. This incentive will not only give a boost in cash back to those who use electric vehicles but will also remain as an example of Walmart’s efforts towards sustainability.
The Bentonville, Arkansas based Sam’s Club has put forth the initiative on Earth Day. The perks given to electric vehicles might help prioritize clean energy as it is necessary to move from fossil based fuels to clean and green energy. Electric vehicles are important as a means of transportation both in the present and future; to increase sustainability. Walmart’s Sam’s Club has begun incentivizing the push towards the increased use of electric vehicles in the U.S.
